Mia has decided hanging out in DH's Armoire is fun.
She is really good at opening doors.

Infant Tortoise ~

While cleaning the Infant tortoise's housing yesterday, she enjoyed a nice warm soak.Was very cute, watched her just about melt and relax.

Will need to take a photo of the party she had in her newly cleaned housing.  Infant was zipping around and enjoying herself.

Stjarnas play day ~

Stjarna has been begging to go out and run in the front pasture for awhile.   She sure doesn't act 25 ! 
So I let her go play while I took Maggie for a short walk.
Used the iphone camera again....   was quite a distance away when I took the photos... am impressed.

Two left ~

Checked the nest today, 
since I had not done it in awhile.
Only 4 of the 5 eggs hatched and now 2 of the 
hatchlings are gone, leaving only this pair.

Maggie and I ~

Selfies are not my thing but I figured I would take one today.  Just used the Cell phone camera,
 as I did not want to drop my good one again.

Sporting my Ice Vest, the walk was slow going today. The degenerative joint disease in my big right toe is extremely painful. Feels like I stepped on a nail every time I put my foot down but Maggie and I needed to walk.

Maggie is doing a lot better, now that we have a new Farrier.
We are both Gimpy and old...  but still enjoy each others company.

Maggie wanted to go for a much longer walk but we will have to try another time.
My breathing and muscle issues.. and the stupid big toe, are not playing nice. She is doing well enough, if I had a cart.... we could go out.

Will see how we are both doing next spring, and then, maybe will go shopping for a cart.

Broken Toe and Hens ~

Broken Toe has been a good rooster, though I do wish the hens would stop grooming his once full beard and muffs.
He is with just a few of his favorites in this photo.

Rest of them are patrolling the place for bugs.

They are outstanding at keeping around the house and two most close pastures free of ticks.

House Finch chicks ~

Saw that the Mother finch was off getting food, so I decided to sneak a peak at the chicks.
Looks like 4 out of the 5 eggs hatched so far.
Almost looks like their are two different breeds of birds in the nest.
Time will tell.
